Re: Old Lady who swallowed a fly

Back to square one. Fox Chapel does own the rights. I don't understand this at all. Could arbitrarily pick a nursery rhyme and copyright it?

Re: Old Lady who swallowed a fly

Indiana University press got back to me, and it looks like I'm good to go. Thanks for your help. This is a great site.

Re: Old Lady who swallowed a fly

I went to the copyright clearance centre and they directed me the Indiana University Press, who has rights to the poem published in 1947, so I sent them a query. Hopefully they'll be able to help. There's more than one way to skin a cat, even if you don't swallow it.

Re: Old Lady who swallowed a fly

Fox Chapel publishing got back to me, and said no, but there have been a number of different variations and songs published. So, I don't quite understand how an Ed Miller has the copyright, unless he bought it from Rose Bonne when he published his book.

Re: Old Lady who swallowed a fly

thank you. I was going to change the words a bit, but just because I want to, not to avoid infringement.

Old Lady who swallowed a fly

I want to make a picture book of this poem. (probably not for sale, just for friends) Do I need copyright permission? I'm in Canada.
